The leaked EU ‘green’ shipping fuel law risks being a climate disaster

June 23, 2021

T&E has obtained a leaked proposal for what was supposed to be the first-ever law requiring ships to progressively switch to sustainable marine fuels. The European Commission is expected to publish its proposal in July 2021.

However, according to T&E’s analysis, the current draft would lead to shipping mostly switching to fossil natural gas and an unsustainable amount of dubious biofuels in the foreseeable future. Below, download the Commission’s leaked draft proposal, its impact assessment, and T&E’s analysis of what the proposal would mean for the climate impact of ships calling at EU ports.
